    Answered . On the basis of FY 2014 trends, Premium processing - receipt notice estimated between April 10 to April 20. Regular - could take longer. USCIS also provides updates on its website www.uscis.gov about the cap limits etc. Sometimes the cases are in hold lists and will not find out until later.

    Answered . USCIS announced they will begin premium processing by April 28th. They are continuing to accept applications until the cap is reached (they were thinking April 5th unless reached earlier). No announcement yet on how many they've received so far. There have been issues with some failed deliveries, and they are advising how to handle it if your petition was originally sent on time, but wasn't received on time.

    Answered . The receipt notices will start arriving in the next 2-4 weeks. The earliest way to know if your application was accepted is to see whether the checks for the filing fees have been cashed.
